In recognition of her work on Criminal Justice, Professor Susanne Karstedt has been awarded the Law and Society Association International Prize earlier this month. The accolade is given to an international scholar each year to highlight their contribution to advancement of knowledge in the field of law and society.
Professor Karstedt can look back on a highly successful career in criminology research and teaching. She has lived and worked in a number of countries, and currently holds a professorship at the Griffith University in Brisbane, Australia, where she continues her work on atrocity crimes and criminal justice systems. She has contributed to a plethora books and articles on morality, crime and justice, of which the Law and Society Association notably mentioned her 1998 essay “Coming to Terms with the Past in Germany after 1945 and 1989: Public Judgments on Procedures and Justice", which has sparked a wave of further research in this area.
